WORLD POETRY DAY

Turns out today is World Poetry Day. Honestly, I wouldn't have known this if it weren't for the trending Instagram tags letting me know. Nevertheless, I decided that today is an important day and I should post some poetry so that I can be a part of it. I haven't shared my poetry with hardly anyone before so I am actually scared of doing this but I am hoping that this blog will be an open space for all of us to share our creativity and our deepest emotions. So here is one!


Yes, it is a bit depressing but I also thought it was appropriate because spring is here and the flowers are blooming...that makes it happier right?.. 

Anyway, I wrote this when I was feeling lonely about a year ago. I had moved to a new place and I really wasn't making any friends. I was wondering if I rushed into adulthood. I was nineteen, working almost full time, and a full time student. I thought I was doing so well getting ahead, but maybe by rushing, I was actually isolating myself and not enjoying my life. Looking back, I am actually grateful for that time because I learned a lot about myself and I am thankful for the experiences that taught me early life lessons.

I hope that you will interpret this poem in your own way and I look forward to sharing more in the future. Please, please, please comment below with some of your own writing (it is World Poetry Day after all, so it is necessary), I would love that so much!

Always Love,

Darcy

  1. Darcy, I love your poem. Very beautiful and just the right kind of sad. This is not a poem I wrote ( I doing know if I will ever be brave enough to post any of those online) but here is a poem I heard recently

    Tell All the Truth but Tell it Slant
    By Emily Dickinson
    Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
    Success in Circuit lies
    Too bright for our infirm Delight
    The Truth's superb surprise
    As Lightning to the Children eased
    With explanation kind
    The Truth must dazzle gradually
    Or every man be blind —

    1. Makayla, that poem is so beautiful and meaningful. What a unique way to think of truth. Thank you for sharing! Also, I already know that you are an amazing writer. You should share your own poetry as well! It would be so amazing to have a section on this blog where people could express themselves in writing and be brave. I am definitely no poet compared to Emily Dickinson but it is the meaning behind what I wrote that matters! I would lovvve to read one of yours sometime.

      Again, thank you for your reply, it made my day xxx
